This is certainly heaven in a scoop, most welcome in this hot, crazy weather.   I can assure you that no one can muster the willpower to stop at  savouring just one scoop of this gooey, green tea flavoured ice cream!










 Recipe for Green Tea Ice Cream

    Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 5 Tbsp sugar
    • 3/4 cup whipping cream
    • 1 Tbsp matcha/green tea powder
    • 3 Tbsp hot green tea OR water
    • A pinch of salt
    Method
    1. Mix hot green tea with matcha powder, set aside.
    2. Whisk egg yolks with sugar, till pale and light.
    3. In a saucepan, whisk cream and milk till smooth.  Cook on low heat till milk just begins to foam up.  Remove from heat.
    4. Pour milk mixture slowly into the egg mixture, stirring continuously so as not to cook the eggs.  Stir in the green tea paste, mix well.
    5. Pour mixture back into the saucepan, cook on low heat stirring with a wooden spoon till mixture can coat the back of the wooden spoon.  (Test by drawing a line through the middle of the custard).
    6. Immediately remove from heat, stir for a few minutes so as not to overcook.
    7. Cover with cling wrap, let cool to room temperature, refrigerate overnight.
    8. Churn for 30 mins., in the ice cream maker or according to the instructions of your ice cream maker.

Traditional Chinese baked sponge cake ~ 烤鸡蛋糕

These old fashioned Chinese baked sponge cakes bring back fond memories of my childhood of  yesteryears.  They taste somewhat like the CNY Kuih Bahulu and I remember snacking on them when I was little.  I've tried making this twice, googled and tweaked the recipe from here and there but the cakes turned out chewy instead of soft and moist.  I was about to raise the white flag when I told myself that I might be third time lucky and thankfully I managed to get what I wanted on my third attempt.  So perserverence does pay!

The recipe may look easy but the beating of the eggs to 'ribbon' stage and the folding/whisking of the flour into the egg mixture can be tricky ...... that's why I had to try thrice before I could achieve what I wanted.  I kept two cakes in a container and they were even softer the next day.... Yum is the word!

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
